2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
cask at the brewpub. Coppery amber. Whiteish bubbly head. Very sweet, candy-like aroma, like sniffing a bag of jelly beans, plus floral hops. Tastes similar. It’s quite different from their regular Best Bitter. Very soft on the palate, even too much so - no liveliness whatsoever. Dry, somewhat grainy finish with a bit of grassy bitterness.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Well balanced British style bitter. Good floral hop nose backed with a great balance of toffee and 2 row. Lots of character from Ringwood yeast. One of the best ales in the maritimes.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a dark caramel color with a large soapy white head that lingered but left minimal lacing. The aroma was tart, fruity, a touch of perfume and leather. The flavor was tart and bitter with vague fruits, citrus perfume and a hint of leather. Medium length finish. Medium body but a bit flat. Not good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Growler from brewer. Amber brown pour with moderate head. Caramel and hops aroma. Moderate palate. Peculiar flat aftertaste. A bit of a disappointment for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft - Caramel, grassy hops and a slight bitterness. Clear gold with a decent white head. Caramel, resinous hops and a mild long lasting bitterness that has some grains. Nice example of a casket ESB.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2014 I enjoyed this Bitter beer. One of the better Bitters I have tasted. Was cool being able to take some home with me in big Growler bottles. Also the food at the brewery was very good, it is a nice little place to visit if anyone is in Younge and Eglinton area.

An old favourite of mine from when I lived nearby. Turns out it’s pretty much as good as I remember. Appearance: clear amber with foamy 3/4-inch head. Aroma: English hops and caramel. Taste: caramel, bread, with a big bitter finish. Great cask texture.

Grey Cup 2012. Sample tray. Had the Best Bitter on tap and the Best Bitter dry hopped cask. I prefered the tap. Nice copper body. Bubbly head and nice lace. Long comforting woody hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From growler into pint glass. Pours a lovely coppery colour with light pillowy head that dissipates fairly quickly, and light to medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a light malty flavour with a hint of hoppiness, and medium bitter aftertaste. A solid British-style bitter,
